FC UNITED will bring their vast army of fans to the Interlink on Monday night to take on Great Harwood (ko 7.45).
The clash with the NWCL Division Two league leaders was postponed last month much to the fury of chairman Bill Holden but he now hopes the fans from Accrington will turn out in their number to support cash-strapped Harwood on Monday.
The supporters from FC United will certainly be there. The newly formed club, a breakaway from Manchester United following Malcolm Glazer's takeover, have been record breakers this season as a crowd of 4,300 watched their victory over Blackpool Mechanics at Bloomfield Road last Saturday.
"I will be happy with around 2000 fans on Monday," said the chairman. "And I fancy us to win it. We have been playing well of late and we believe that we can certainly get something out of the game.
"It should be a good match on the pitch and off it as it will be a huge boost financially. With having no ground, we haven't got bar takings so this gives us a great chance to get some money in and pay off a few of our debts, such as loans directors have given us which has kept us going.
"Hopefully, the money from thisgame will keep us going until the end of the season. It does depend on the weather but I hope a few Accrington fans will come and watch us as they have in the past."
It is a huge few days for seventh placed Harwood as, before the leaders, they travel to second placed Winsford tomorrow (Sat, KO 3pm).
"It is a big few days for us," said the chairman. "It is a good chance for us, playing the top two, to move up the league."
The cost for the FC United game is £7 for adults and £3 concessions.
- HARWOOD'S game against Daisy Hill on Wednesday night was postponed due to Hill's involvement in the Second Division Trophy.
